I was wrong, what I was looking for was in the Gateless Gate -

As for those who try to understand through other people's words, they are striking at the moon with a stick; scratching a shoe, whereas it is the foot that itches. What concern have they with the truth?

As a beginner, I'm painfully aware of my complete lack of knowledge. I continue to seek new information, new texts and new conversations.

I'm trying to remember a part of the Diamond Sutra that speaks to the path of enlightenment isn't the path the Buddha took. That the Buddha hesitated to teach what he had learned because it was beyond words and he knew that by saying these words the words would become an anchor keeping people locked in samsara. That Mind is what we are and through Mind we break the chains.
